Default Olympus C4000Z External Flash Suggestions

I got an Olympus C4000Z camera last year and have taken some great shots with it. I held off on picking up an external flash because the price of the Olympus FL-40 with the cable and bracket equalled or exceeded the price of the camera! Even now, I've priced a FL-40 with all the accessories at over $400. I've also noticed recommendations for the Digi-Slave and Promaster flashes.

I really am a newbie to photography and have spent the past year mainly shooting either without the built-in flash or outdoors. Can someone recommend an external flash that I will be happy with? I'd prefer one that can interface with the TTL port but if it works well enough, I'd forego it if I can save some money.

thanks,
Bill

Take a look at this, not TTL but will work as a slave on or off camera.

Don't know if it's available in the US though

Well, after a frustatingly unsuccessful trip to a local camera shop looking for the Promaster flash, I broke down and got the FL-40 after finding it at a pretty decent price. I also noticed that the resale price on this flash is pretty strong. So it looks like I'll have a new toy for my camera in about a week or less.

thanks for the suggestions,
Bill
